The Killers, who are Las Vegas-based rockers have been keeping it low profile for quite some time now and finally, they have come out of their two-year-long shield. They not only revealed the title of their lead single from their upcoming studio album Imploding the Mirage, which is Caution but has also disclosed their plans to take a 31 date North America tour as well.

According to, on their upcoming Imploding the Mirage tour, front man Brandon Flowers and co are on a trip to play shows across the U.S and Canada between the months of August and October.

Even though the fans are super excited for their comeback but given the massive worldwide concern pertaining to the Corona virus, COVID-19 it is not the best of times for the When You Were Young rockers to make a comeback.

The worldwide spread of the Corona illness has hugely affected the entertainment industry as several concerts, tours have been postponed that also includes the cancellation of the 2020 Juno Awards, and the suspension of the 2019-20 NHL season on Thursday. All such events will prove the terror that has captured the hearts of all.

With major instances happening all around, no one can guarantee as to whether or not The Killers will remain unaffected or not. The band of four has shared that the corona virus is similar to the traditional flu and will thereby follow the same seasonal pattern and will disappear while the team will be back for their return.

In order to show their awareness, on Thursday afternoon The Killers took to Twitter to claim that the four-piece band has been taking all sorts of precautionary actions given a major concern revolving around COVID-19 and have finalized their statement to take the tour.

On being asked further the team revealed how they have been planning to get this through for a very long time and that they are extremely excited to finally share the news with everyone. They also stated that the team is super thrilled for the upcoming host of events and is looking forward to a great summer of shows.

The band concluded their statement by saying that everyone must after each other and sing the chorus of Mr. Brightside while they wash their hands. Clearly, the band took reference from the breakthrough 2004 hit single and the recently viral not for profit Wash Your Lyrics website. It seems that they are really looking forward to seeing their fans bather up for them this summer.
